For an ultraluxurious bath, melt one teaspoon of shea butter into hot running water.

Birchbox Breakdown

This miracle butter holds the key to solving multiple skin problems: rough patches, eczema, winter dryness, psoriasis, and minor burns (we’re still waiting for it to find our keys in the morning). While the concentrated formula means you only need a small amount, we dream of floating in a pool of this stuff. The 100 percent concentration features all the natural healing properties of highly prized shea butter, without any artificial fillers.

How it Works

Harvested from the fruit of the African karite tree, shea butter restores suppleness and combats dryness. USDA-certified as 100 percent organic shea butter and gentle enough for sensitive skin and even babies, this body butter is particularly effective during the cooler months, when skin suffers most from dehydration.

How to Use

Because its formula is highly concentrated, just a dollop should do. For dry or scaly skin, massage into skin once or twice daily. To soothe burns, warm butter between hands and gently massage product onto clean, affected area twice daily.

100% purely refined, certified organic shea butter

Good for your skin

I like the packaging , especially the fact its in glass and there's a lid. I love how it feels & finished my jar up rather quickly. Shea butter is amazing for every skin type, especially in cold, winter climates or if you're a person whose hands come in contact with water a lot. This is a great product to use all over your body in prep for sundress & bikini season too. A bigger jar would be my only suggestion...

Heals chapped hands

My poor boyfriend gets very dry skin and he claims this is the best thing he's ever used. It seems to heal his skin up really well.

Meh

I really wanted to love this but I don't. When I have the time to apply it my skin does look really good, however because of the consistency of the shea butter, it takes me a really long time to apply it to my skin and rub it in.

OMG! Great for kids with eczema

i bought this for my daughter. She has had a dry patch of eczema that has kept resurfacing for almost a year now - since my daughter got a flu shot. Expensive medications did nothing for it, but this is finally getting it to clear up. What a nice product. Not a lot of scent, which is great, due to the eczema. It is a nice, natural thick creme, that instantly softens when it hits the skin. I'm a huge fan.

VERY GOOD QUALITY PRODUCT. A+

I DECIDED TO TRY THIS WITHOUT SAMPLING IT FIRST. THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD BUY. I LOVE IT. THIS DIDNT HAVE ANY SMELL TO IT WHICH WAS FINE WITH ME. I READ THE REVIEWS SAYING IT SMELLED OF STRONG FAKE BANANA FRAGRANCE. I LOOK FORWARD TO USING THIS ON MY CUTICALS.

Turned to Chalk.....

Maybe I got a bad batch but my shea butter has turned solid and is difficult to get out of the jar. Which in turn makes for a messy project as I now have to massage it into my palm so the small pieces don't get all over the place. I had hoped for a luscious, smooth product but got this instead.

Awesome in a jar!

I just love this! I wash my hands a lot (OCD) and this is the only moisturizer that heals my dry, red hands. Love it! My only (small) complaint is that you have to heat it in your hands and it is harder to spread all over my arms or body...but I use it mostly for my hands.

So smooth

Goes on smooth even though its thick and smells nice and clean. The jar will be lasting me a long time!

Love it... In theory

Love this Shea butter! It goes on SO smooth, but I cannot get past this banana scent. Unfortunately I think I will have to toss it...

Works wonders

I had just had a baby when I purchased this body butter. It helped with my stretch marks on my stomach, and healed all of my dry skin from the winter air. I also have been trying to find a moisturizer that would heal my dry heels and this one did it. I love this product!
